Now that the Suns have dealt Eric Bledsoe, they can continue moving in a new direction. However, the Heat are very much in need of moving in a new direction on Wednesday coming off getting embarrassed by the Warriors. With the Heat as road favorites, can we trust them against this unpredictable Suns team?

Heat vs. Suns

It’s tough to play the Warriors on no rest but the Heat didn’t put up much of a fight against them on Monday. However, after Hassan Whiteside was benched for that game in the second half, I have to think they will come out with a bit more urgency tonight against a bad team.

Phoenix has lost three in a row SU and ATS after winning four of five SU and going 5-0 ATS during that stretch. I think most people expected them to fall back down to earth after that stretch, and tonight I expect the Heat to play up to par.

Dion Waiters will be back in uniform after missing the last two games due to the birth of his daughter, and believe it or not, he is kind of the glue that holds this team together. They don’t have a ton of offensive weapons, and other than Goran Dragic, Waiters is the only other guy who can get his own shot on the perimeter in the starting lineup.

With him back in action, I think the combination of Whiteside down low, and Dragic and Waiters on the perimeter will be too much for the young Suns.
